view. pow mackoy romney says boo who get over it. and finally, the media want obama to be re-elected. the left will do anything and everything to keep the left wing socialist. those are some of our facebook comments this morning. if you'd like to make a comment, continue the conversation on this topic. go to facebook.com/cspan. here's "the wall street journal" this morning. swing state, a tough sell for romney. obama has a slim lead in north carolina, nevada, wider margin in new hampshire. if you come down here, we can see that currently, according to "the wall street journal"/nbc poll, barack obama leads in nevada 49% to 47%. he leads in new hampshire 51% to 44%, and in north carolina 48% to 46%. however, two of the three states, north carolina and nevada, both think that mitt romney is stronger on the economy. so that's one set of polls. now, we've got this other set of polls we want to show you very quickly, and this is from rasmussen, and he does -- scott rasmussen's group, rasmussenreports.com, they do a daily tracking poll. for a long time now, they've been showing this race as
for political purposes, perhaps for election purposes. and i'm not sure that plighting our intentions to put out difficult nit time lines was and would be the smartest answer. you've got people over there that want to do us harm. you've got the taliban there that think about human bppings differently than we do. we know about the atrosstiss to women. and so we haven't done a good enough job in educating our country about the bad guys that exist. that we need to meet them offshore before they come on shore. it's only been ten years since 9/11. >> first of all, i applaud the president for having brought our sons and daughters home from iraq. a war we should have never been in and a war i voted against. i have been an advocate in changing our policy in afghanistan to count terrorism. we're trying to prop up a government in afghanistan. couldn't terrorism requires far less troops and focuses at striking against al qaeda sweledl as well as any taliban insurjents we might need for the purpose of our fight. i believe that the draw down in afghanistan is well positioned. i'm actually an advocate of some
are watching this tonight. the first in the presidential debates in this election cycle between president barack obama and former massachusetts governor mitt romney. the stage is ready in denver, colorado. the university of denver. and all of the expectations management to the contrary, the two men you're going to see tonight are very good debaters. they have four ivy league degrees between them, after all, and 50 debates between them, though not against each other until tonight. there is a critical third man on that stage tonight in denver. that's the moderator, jim lehrer of pbs. he's done a dozen of these. and the rules, which he will announce at the start, give him broad leeway to guide the conversation and the debate. it is a cold room in denver. the campaigns wanted the temperature low. and it's not likely to stay that way once we get under way. both men have been prepping for days. this happens to be the obamas' 20th wedding anniversary. moments ago we saw a warm embrace between mrs. romney and mrs. obama. they both met each other at the front of the hall. their hiss, this is the f

and romney debate. many of the issue that could be deciding factors in the election. both candidates were aggressive as they talked act the economy, health care and the role of the government. karen travers breaks down the argument. >> reporter: the president and romney finally went head to head. right out of the gate the candidates boiled down their economic arguments. >> governor romney, has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, go toward the wealthy and roll back regulation that we will be better off. i have a different view. >> the president has a view similar to the one he had when he ran four years ago. if you will trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer former. >> reporter: his comments about the 47% have taken a toll on his campaign. even before that leaked video show that americans think he favors the wealthy. tonight he wanted to try to change that perspective. >> the people who are having the hard time right now are middle income americans. under the president's policies they have been buried. they are just being crushed. i will not under any circu
in virginia at george mason in fairfax. we will have a live report. >> a with abc 7, your election station. continuing coverage of the election and the latest information on our website at wjla.com. turning to a story developing in bethesda. montgomery county fire fighters on the scene of a propane leak in bethesda. >> at least five homes have been evacuated. fire crews monitoring air quality. john gonzalez has an exclusive with the affected residents. >> unique, modern technology being added to this home. but careless mistake this morning for his -- put his entire neighborhoods in danger. >> you could smell the gas in the air. >> workers were digging thermal wells for heating and cooling but a bobcat excavator drove over a vent pipe connected to one of thousand dollars underground propane tank. hundreds of gallons started spewing into the air quickly. the panic level rose quickly. they called the hazmat team and we got evacuated. >> most of the homes on the block were evacuated. an elderly man needed assistance. this is not the way residents wanted to start their day. >> a little disconc
romney because of what they see in the debate, that could sway the election. now if the debates are a draw, that's probably to the advantage of president obama. it is mitt romney who needs to shake things up in these debates. >> and find out whether or not things get shaken up for yourself. watch tonight on channel 9, wusa9 and check out our website. take advantage of that fact checking from the news people here at u.s.a. today. back to you in the studio. >> do you remember in past elections when the voter said they might move out of the country if their candidate didn't win? >> oh yeah, usually an empty threat for sure. >> tonight, one airline has a way for them to make good on those threats. of course, it's coming from jet blue, who else? it's going to give away 2012 seats to customers whose candidates don't win the presidential election. all you have to do is log on to their website, let the airline know who you are pulling for and after november 6, the airline will draw winners of that pool from losing supporters. so, what do you think? >> i don't buy that. if they were
